I would like to ask if you really need such reach? Personally I would rather exchange smaller reach for better image quality and low light performance of 1" sensor cameras.

Sony DSC-RX10 series is expensive, but maybe cameras like Panasonic FZ2500 or FZ1000 II would serve you well.

I also seem to feel like I'm wanting more reach when I'm out and about.  I had previously looked at the FZ1000 II and took it off my list due to the max 400mm focal length.  However, I had not looked at the FZ2500.  I just took a quick gander.  At least it goes to 480mm, but that is still quite a bit less than what I am used to now with the SX40, which extends to 840mm.

Here's one of my critical questions:  If I go from the SX40 to the SX70, the Nikon P950, or the Panasonic DC-FZ80 (those are my three main contenders right now), will I see improved image quality and performance over what I have now with the SX40.   Or, will I really just be spending money and not buying myself anything better than what I own right now?
